Wrongful Death Settlement

Farrish Johnson Attorney Daniel Bellig recently settled a substantial and complex wrongful death claim arising out of an accident that occurred in Southern Minnesota.  The decedent, a father of four, was driving a semi-tractor and pulling a tanker of anhydrous ammonia.  He was killed when a farm tractor made a sudden left turn into a field approach.  The farm tractor struck the semi tractor and trailer.  The semi-tractor and trailer rolled into the ditch and adjoining field.  Annhydrous ammonia leaked from the semi’s tanker and the vapors entered the cab.  In addition to obtaining a lump sum monetary settlement from the farm tractor’s insurer, Daniel Bellig obtained a resolution of the workers compensation subrogation claim, which included a waiver of any claim for future credit against ongoing benefit payments to the decedent’s children.
